Claire Lukacs on Legacy of Letters

Claire Lukacs (Legacy of Letters 2019 and Legacy of Letters 2022):

The two times that I have attended Legacy of Letters have literally been a visual feast. If you have any interest in the history of type, you won’t be disappointed. And the workshop part is so enjoyable with Peter and Sayre and the crew from Tipoteca. Not to mention, Italy and the food…

Legacy of Letters 2023 will take place from June 29 to July 12, 2023. It will include stops in Milano, Torino, Alpignano, Casteggio, Parma, Modena, Venice, and Cornuda. We will visit five libraries/museums, four letterpress shops, one silkscreen shop, and the Tipoteca (where we will have a multi-day letterpress workshop).
